Super Minty Fresh Chocolate Cookies

Smart Cookies, Sweet Treats

Sugar Monsters!! How are you? How was your weekend?!?!

I had a fabulous weekend. Fab-u-lous! And, I hope you did too.

Now it’s monday :(

Monday… back to work, back to school, back to responsibilities and back to longing for the comfy-cozy feeling of being in your pj’s snuggled in bed.

:(

Let’s rescue Monday… Let’s instead give Monday a great name, and an amazing feeling by adding some chocolate to this party.

How can you have a lame monday if there’s chocolate involved?

Yaaa-hooooo for Mondays with chocolate :D

These cookies are SO incredibly chocolatey… and oh so SUPER-DUPER minty fresh.

If that hasn’t sold you on these little gobs of yumm … there’s thin mints in them.

Yes.

I said

THIN MINTS!!

Confession: I read everywhere the best way to eat thin mints.. were frozen. So, I froze them… and almost ate the entire package.

No words. *droool*

Besides, rescuing monday … I needed to rescue my waist-line… so I made these.

Now, I get to share the yumm-osity with all of you good-looking people.

Happy Monday :)

    1. Thanks Liz for your comment – – that’s really so sweet of you :) They are a wonder for sure … once they were made, I shared them with the neighbours kids and they disappeared like candy.
      Definitely kid approved ;)

  1. I have been fighting the thin mints all week. Throwing thin mints into cookies with mint hot chocolate now that is a fight I am sure to loose.

    1. Lol – – Alli, trust me – – I know exactly what you’re talking about!! I ended up giving these away as soon as possible just so I didn’t have too many around the kitchen.
      They could always be popped in the freezer once made :)
